My Feelings:

Tessa doesn't believe in magic. Or Fate. But there's something weird about the dusty unicorn tapestry she discovers in a box of old books. She finds the creature woven within it compelling and frightening. After the tapestry comes into her possession, Tessa experiences dreams of the past and scenes from a brutal hunt that she herself participated in. When she accidentally pulls a thread from the tapestry, Tessa releases a terrible centuries old secret. She also meets William de Chaucy, an irresistible 16th-century nobleman. His fate is as inextricably tied to the tapestry as Tessa's own. Together, they must correct the wrongs of the past. But then the Fates step in, making a tangled mess of Tessa's life. Now everyone she loves will be destroyed unless Tessa does their bidding and defeats a cruel and crafty ancient enemy.

My Review:
Oh my goodness, I loved, loved Warped. I stayed up most of the night reading this book and I usually don’t do that unless it’s utterly amazing. And it is: a-mazing!

Tessa is a character I liked. She’s fun, smart and doesn’t trust everyone easily.
I loved the relationship she has with her dad. It was realistic and it just felt so warm. And a big bonus point for her dad being around Tessa all the time. I mean hello? How many times are parents absent or totally not caring of their own off-spring? Like all the time. Also love, love that he has his own bookstore. Yay, dad! William de Chaucy is so cute. He’s polite, kind and caring. I just adored him.

I loved the romance as much as I loved the very cool adventure in this story. It felt so sweet and cute. Ah. It was just captivating and I couldn’t get enough of the conversations William had with Tessa. Every scene in this book was enchanting. It got everything, romance, suspense and action to make me raving about it for days to come.

Warped drew me in from the very beginning and didn’t let loose until the last page. Don’t miss this book, you must read it!

You made this book sound like a must read! :) I'll definitely have to check it out.

Also, in YA novels, I feel like the parents are NEVER included. Some of my favorite YA novels are some of those few that have parents in them!

Oh I've wanted to read this one. I also love that it has an involved parent. AND it's a dad! WIN!

Thanks for letting me know how much this rocked.

Wow! It sounds like this one really did it for you, Nina! I'm so happy to hear it! I remember putting this one on my to-read list when it first came out, but I kind of forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me that Warped definitely needs to get bumped up on my to-read list! :)

A dad who cares? AND OWNS BOOKSTORE?! I had added this to my tbr pile, but I will raise its priority since it does sound cool. :) Hope you find tons more books that you love just as much!
